Nicole Reed, MPH, is currently the Project Director for Native WYSE (Women, Young, Strong, Empowered) CHOICES at the University of Colorado's Centers for American Indian and Alaska Native Health. This project is an mHealth intervention via phone app to help reduce alcohol exposed pregnancies amongst urban Native young women, and to help them make the choices that are the best for them, and their future goals. Previously, she was a grant coordinator for Oklahoma State University’s Community Wellness Programs to help reduce the nonmedical use of prescription drugs in Tribal communities through policy, prescription drug take-back programs, and community awareness. Her research interests include adolescent Indigenous health, sexuality-related health disparities, the intersectionality between sexual health and ATOD use, and mHealth and social-media based health interventions.
